Scrap the Boys July Challenge

Over at Scrap the Boys this month the challenge was to use TAPE on your layout, and you also need to use PLAY in your title.

Here is my layout:

 I have used Basic Grey Papers 'Oliver' i just loved the fun feel this paper range had.

And some close ups...
this is a close up of my 'Tape' all i did was run it through my printer to print the text onto it - easy :)
I found the tape blended with the white background so i dry brushed some red paint underneath the tape before I place it down.

 Dont you just love these 'splats' of red??? I love it!!! and it is so easy to do, i just watered down some red paint with some water sucked it up into a syringe and gently pressed it so droplets would fall out randomly over the white cardstock!  (make sure you do it in a covered area or the paint just goes everywhere if you miss the paper - i did it in the shower) hehehe

Not the best pick....but it shows one of the cute lil monkeys and my denim embellishment i created.

I didnt have the right colour string for this I inked it, and I love the rough look it has given it :)
Also cute monkeys again...yay!

Thanks for looking

One of my fav Monkee's songs enjoy :)

Sketch #76 Inspired Blueprints

I was so excited when i got onto Inspired Blueprints to find a NEW sketch to play with.

And here is my take on it...

 This is Mia, My best friend Nicole's lil girl, she is so cute :)
I have used the Kaisercraft Bubblegum Hills collection. I was inspired by the colours used in the papers so i created the background by stamping my bubble wrap stamp with different colours and randomly placing them on my white cardstock.

 Do u like my flower???? I made it myself...I had the sewing machine out the other day and created it :)

I loved this title, it says it all about Mia...
Its her Beauty that captures your attention, Its her Personality that captures your heart.
And some butterflies with BLING!!!

Bird is the Word 'AMAZING' Challenge

I thought I would have a go at the Bird is the Word challenge.
The word to use was 'AMAZING'

here is my take on the challenge...

I have used the Kaisercraft Pink Gelato paper range for this layout and have used some WOW chipboard.
The paper range is very soft (and hard to photograph - sorry for the bad pics)
